This paper presents a closed-form formulation and geometrical interpretation of the derivatives of the Jacobian matrix of fully parallel robots with respect to the moving platforms’ position/orientation variables. Similar to the Jacobian matrix, these derivatives are proven to be also groups of lines that together with the lines of the instantaneous direct kinematics matrix govern the singularities of the active stiffness control. This geometric interpretation is utilized in an example of a planar 3 degrees-of-freedom redundant robot to determine its active stiffness control singularity.
